Today I introduce to you a very lovely blogger who's blog makes me want to forget the huge pile of washing up, grab my jacket and go out for dinner... after a day of exploring London of course! Anyway enough from me... over to you Miho.
'Wander to Wonder is a lifestyle, food & travel blog based in London - it's really an online scrapbook where I liked to share the little (and big!) joys in life.
How long have you been blogging for?
It's been nearly 2 years since I started WTW - can't quite believe it! I started it just as I was leaving Austria (where I studied for 3 years) and returning to London, because I wanted to capture and celebrate the adventures waiting to be had there with my (new, back then) husband in tow.
What is your favourite hidden spot in London?
This is a hard one, because nowhere really manages to stay hidden in the city, especially with all the social media coverage the good spots get! Maybe one place that I stumbled upon last year that a lot of people told me they never know about, is the beautiful Kyoto Garden in Holland Park. It's a Japanese garden with ponds and mini waterfalls, with koi swimming around and stunning peacocks lounging and relaxing. As I am actually Japanese (but grew up mostly in London), this is a special little place.
As for food, again, the good restaurants don't stay hidden for long - but there are lesser known food trucks that pop up in street food markets that are amazing, and my favourite is probably the Frenchie, who serve duck confit burgers with cheese & truffle honey. Incredible.
Where have you enjoyed travelling to the most?
It's so difficult to choose! Of course, going to the Maldives for our honeymoon was spectacular and the stuff dreams are made of. But I also loved Lake Como, where we went last summer, and I have a soft spot for the South of France where my husband is from and where we got married. But the place that we are absolutely determined to visit again is Santorini, Greece, where we'd stay in the same hotel and be reminded of one of the happiest times of our lives (where he proposed!). I really cheated with this question, didn't I? It's impossibe to narrow it down!
What is your favourite dish to cook/eat?
Although I love food, I'm not the most frequent of cooks... but luckily, my French-foodie husband is a fantastic cook so I kind of get away with it! My favourite thing to eat of his is probably Lobster Ravioli & Gratin Dauphinois, my favourite thing to cook (or rather, bake) is brownies, and to eat out is sushi.
What is your favourite tea?
I'm not a big black tea drinker - it's herbal all the way. I tend to drink green tea by the bucketful, but for fancier varieties, I love Yumchaa teas - they all smell amazing and I always have a couple of bags at home on hand.
Which three blogs are your favourite and why?
Again, a tricky one as there are so many wonderful blogs out there. My current favourites include Winding Ridge Lane for the beauty of Jane's honest writing and her gorgeous photos, Cider with Rosie for documenting the little things in life with a natural voice and stunning photography, and A Certain Adventure for Tamsin's account of her London escapades and her intelligent and humorous way with words.'
I hope you have enjoyed learning more about Miho and her lovely blog as much as I have.
